HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A Hattiesburg animal shelter made a visit to a local pub Sunday evening to find forever homes for some homeless pets.  

Southern Pines Animal Shelter got together with Keg & Barrel to host a sixth annual fundraiser called, "Tails and Ales: Meet Your Soul Mutt."

Folks who dropped by enjoyed live music, raffles and other activities, while meeting some potential new four-legged friends face-to-face.

This year for the first time, several cats also came along. 

"A lot of dogs don't show too well in the shelter and you can't get a really good feel of how the dog is," said Brittany Curtzweiler, events coordinator with Southern Pines Animal Shelter. "So, with the dogs interacting in a very social setting, you get to see, oh, this dog will be great in my home, it's a dog I can take out to the bar and have fun with."

Curtzweiler hoped to raise about $5,000 at the event.
